I think he was my anesthesiologist for my knee surgery, actually. Sad, really. 30,000 items he had? We're not exactly talking about a small oversight of a random potsherd here...

I'm going to respond in the thread I started an hour before biffnix's. Sorry for the duplicate threads.

Sierra Wave story on this. Bourne pleads not guilty.

http://www.sierrawave.net/mammoth-man-p ... iolations/

I felt it was classless of the author of the LA Times article to even mention his brother's suicide and reason behind it. That absolutely was not necessary.

Just about everyone pleads not guilty at arraignment.. It means nothing.

He'll plea bargain before it's all over.

Perhaps he'll blame the shovel or the boots he used to walk in while looking for artifacts.

Clearly, the doctor was obsessed with finding and collecting Indian artifacts. Him and about a hundred other guys who go out daily with metal detectors and hammer arch sites. What an idiot to post removing an artifact online from some hiking group adventure.

He was going to be Joe archaeologist and make the super find of the century.

When I came to Mammoth in the 70s, a lot of dudes were out searching for artifacts and amassed huge collections. The people who did this are people you know, and those collections are in their houses today.

Where the doctor made his mistake is that he failed to give back. He should have contacted the forest archaeologist before removing that bow piece from the ice. He is now forced to give back all his collection, and his house and vehicles are confiscated.

The dumb ass has to learn the hard way. Stop thieving our American culture and have fun getting poked in prison.

You watch too much CSI windy, if the guy does get jail time it will be in a country club federal prison. I doubt he will ever do a day in jail. I agree with SkierBob…

I don't think so! They are going to make a big example out of this clown. Theft of artifacts is very serious now. He is busted by the video. There are witnesses. I don't watch CSI, and I don't exaggerate like you do OGT. You are still a punk and a big asshole! I come back on this forum and you immediately attack like the prick you are! You are the enemy!

Nailed it right there WS

When I talked with my other good buddies today they said the same thing. They went on to say it's about ethics & character, and any doctor that would bang a 14 year old or steal historical artifacts are of extremely questionable ethics & character...

of course ,, the story about the cabin on the back side of Glass Mtn is bad ass.. Just goes to show you ya never know who you're hanging with.

It is truly about ethics and character with everything in life. I used to take until one day I learned to give back. I don't like to be attacked, do you? What are you dude, some kind of OGT fan? What a drag! That phony freak doesn't know how to surf, He is a liar!

Believe it or not, not true. Been there, WS is a man of few worldly possessions.

My wife & I have been hiking, 4 wheeling, exploring & photographing (slides only, sorry)hundreds remote Anasazi and Native American sites throughout all of the Southwest for many years, especially Cedar Mesa in Utah,as well as all of all the "Biggies" of the SW, & many of the Canyons that drain into the Colorado. I have ZERO potshards, no matter how small, or any other artifact to show for it & would have it no other way. To deprive the Native Americans of their history & culture, & other hikers & explorers from the absolute joy of discovery & revisiting history in these spectacular remote settings is absolutely sickening to me.

Looting sites & graves has been huge business here in AZ & actually an Arizona ranching pioneer tradition it would seem for many years. Every rain reveals more artifacts to be discovered hiking in the washes draining the side canyons of the cliff dwellings into the main drainages. The University of AZ, here in Tucson is home to the The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research (LTRR) established in 1937 by A.E. Douglass, founder of the modern science of dendrochronology. The archeology done by Emil Haury & James Dean especially in the Tsegi Canyon region of the Dine (Navajo) combined with the tree ring dating of Douglas has been a boon to Archeology worldwide.

If any of you Folks out here have any interest in Cliff Dwellings, rock art, & things Anasazi like, such as Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, & other Gigantic settlements like Chaco Canyon in NM, I urge you to someday check out Navajo National Monument in AZ. The short hike to Betatakin, & long overnighter to Keet Seel set in the spectacular Tsegi Canyon region is trully a magical experience. There is a great campgound there as well with great sunrises & sunsets.

Also not to be missed is Canyon De Chelly, near Chinle, Az. There are Rim Drives above both Canyon De Chelly & Canyon Del Muerto that look down into many spectacular Cliff Dwellings. But not to be missed is Driving the bottoms of the Canyons in a 4 wheel drive & visiting all the sites. They have guided tours in big trucks, but I had a Navajo friend so was able to drive the canyons with he & our wives in my truck, where the Dine are still herding sheep there in Season.

The Dine were yet another hugely peaceful tribe subjected to White Man's inexcuseable treatment of Native Americans. Close to 10000 were rounded up or surrendered & forced to walk between 300 & 450 miles to imprisonment In New Mexico. 53 different forced marches occurred between August 1864 and the end of 1866, collectively known as "The Long Walk". In 1868 they were allowed to return to their native lands, now on a 3.5 million Acre reservation, & now faced the Long Walk Home.
